These cupronickel 1 Roubles of Russia were issued in 1987 when it was known as CCCP or USSR, Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, shortly after their break up.
These are much more difficult to find than most dealers realise. We know because we
have sold quantities back to Russia. This 1987 1 Rouble was issued for the 175th Anniversary of the Battle of Borodino. Don't miss out, they are priced right and much
more difficult to find than the catalogues indicate.
This coin was issued under Russia when it was the USSR, it is the largest denomination that
was actually used every day as money. It is dated 1989 and it is dated both on the reverse
and on the edge of the coin. You have the hammer and sickle on one side and the denomination
on the other side.
The current catalogue price is $30.00 in mint state 60 and there is no price for this coin in
mint state 63, which they are. It is a scarce coin, in much better condition than they usually
come. We bought them right, so we are going to sell them right.
Uncirculated it catalogues at £22.70. A tough coin to get, especially so choice.
